Okay, so I know we don't generally spend much time discussing our favorite versions of MAMU and Mexicali, but I listened to this one again yesterday and it just flat out shreds Also the Miller AUD is so much better than the SBD.....IMHO.

The whole show kicks some serious ass:

1/15/79 - Not bad - Jerry's shredding on "Mexicali", too bad Keith apparantly took the day off. I always enjoy a good piano solo on the song, especially during the Hornsby era.

Is it just me, or does Bobby sing "We used to play for silver, now we play for Clive" on Jack Straw? A subtle dig at Arista, perhaps?

I've always liked the one on Dick's Pick 11, Stanley Theater 1972-09-27.

The following link will take you to a Mr Blotto show which I reviewed earlier this year, which was the release party for their "Barlow Shanghai" album.

The album was co-written with John Barlow, and the live show had them play a slow version of Mexicali Blues. When they finished the song Barlow, who was there for the party, said:

"That's the first time ever since I wrote that song back in 1971 that anyone ever played it right"

Well,

Jack Straw starts out strong, Jerome’s picking on “Jack o Roe” is profound, definitely an "energy" in the air this particularly fine evening.

Nak CM-300's are relatively pedestrian microphones but the location of the taper in the room this evening is proper.

Thanks for the shove in the > right direction!

Holy slowed down rendition Batman!

Trying to decide if I like it or not... It certainly is different.

Hm, mexicali blues on quaaludes. Wasn't bad, but I kept spacing out and then thinking, Is this song STILL playing?

I love this song. I'll listen to it pretty much every time it comes up in a show. There are so many good ones per-retirement, but check this out.

The first set is an All-Timer, except for ETLY (sorry Brent).
